As the war evolved into the 40th millenium, so did The Adeptus Mechanicus.
The Adeptus Mechanicus is a technological organisation, often known as the
Priesthood of Mars. It holds a monopoly on technological knowledge in the
Imperium. Their Forge Worlds turn out the Imperium’s most powerful and
advanced weaponry and equipment. The organisation’s adepts, the Tech-priests,
are vital in maintaining much of the Imperium’s more technologically advanced
equipment, not the least of which is the Emperor’s life-sustaining Golden
Throughout this everlasting war, rubble and debris had taken over the world,
or what was left of it. The Adeptus Mechanicus wondered, how they can save,
of what used to be mankind and its technology. That’s when The Adeptus Mecha-
nicus embressed the ideology of saving of what was, by incorporating techno-
logy into their own flesh (and blood). eventually they took it to a level,
that it became their faith and goal, to turn everything and everyone, into an
From this idea, I started my artistic noiseproject, Adeptus Mechanicus. With
this project, I’m trying to save the environment,through the use of broken
and trashed electronics and metal junk.I find it very important, that we all
try to do as much as we can, to save the world, before it’s actually too late
and we regret the fact, that we didn’t acted earlier.
The fyscical form of this Noiseproject, came from the brain, of 32 year old
Dutchman Gerrit J. Vos.
«As far as I can remember I always have a taste for hard and experimental music. Music
started for me with artists like Jean-Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk. From that I
broaden it towards House, Trance and Techno, which later on slowly moved
towards musicstyles, such as Hardcore, Digital Hardcore and Industrial Hardcore.
From that point on, I was around 23, I wanted to go faster and harder. That’s
when I discovered the (harsh) Noise.
At first, it sounded very alienated to me, a bit too far and too strange for my
taste. But the more I listened to this, themore I started to like it, and embressed
the idea, that music shouldn’t be bounded by some rule or boundary, which held
me back from total freedom of musical expression. Acts like Merzbow a.s.o., opened
my creative ear and eye. That was for me, I was than around 27 or 28, a point of no
return, of what I had to become, musically speaking.
At the age of 30, I was at the point, I started thinking about beginning some sort
of a experimental or noiseproject myself. But not just another noiseproject, like
so many. But I also wanted to mean something for my environment, to save nature,
where I can, as much as possible. That’s why I choose to use, what I am using,
which is trashed electronic equipment and metal junk.»
